Macroeconomic and Policy Challenges Following Financial MeltdownsConference hosted by the International Monetary Fund
Date: Friday, April 3, 2009
Time: 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Venue: IMF Atrium HQ1-RD-710, Washington DC
The conference will discuss how we can prevent acute and prolonged recessions after financial meltdowns and facilitate quick recovery. It will draw lessons from research on economic activities after financial meltdowns, based on both theoretical and empirical case studies. Those would include the current crisis, the Great Depression, Japan's lost decade, Asian crisis, and Latin American crisis. Specifically, leading academic, central bank, and IMF researchers will present and discuss key theoretical models and applied empirical studies, which may include technical but rigorous analysis. The conference will conclude with a panel discussion (4:00 pm -) on policies for recovery. The conference is intended for policymakers and academics.
